Tokyo Big Sight, also known as the Tokyo International Exhibition Center, is an iconic building along the Tokyo City skyline. Set on the shore of Tokyo Bay, its instantly recognizable shape makes it stand-out amongst the surrounding buildings.
Tokyo Big Sight was originally designed to serve as a convention and exhibition center. Since its opening in 1996, Tokyo Big Sight has played host to local and international conventions alike. Several shops and a range of dining options can be found inside the complex, as can a number of modern art installations. The organizers for the 2020 Olympics have debated using the venue for martial arts and wrestling events, but a final decision has yet to be made.
Business travelers are sure to enjoy getting up to date with the city’s latest expos and happenings in this unique Tokyo tourist attraction. The site’s calendar is filled with exhibitions throughout the year. Most events are held on weekdays and the majority are free to enter. In addition to the events, the Conference Tower is an iconic and artistic building in its own right, with events such as projection mapping and light shows highlighting its unique architecture in a dazzling way.
Opening hours change depending on which events are being held.
